We organised a package through a tour opeator that included a couple of nights at Balaibinda as well as a tour of the town and Coron Island.
The hotel is just off the market square in the centre of town, with the sound of vendors and tricycles making you feel in the heart of Coron life. Considering Super Typhoon Haiyan (known locally as Yolanda; Y for the 25th typhoon to hit the Philippines this year so far) had rolled through a month previous, the hotel and the island showed little sign of defeat and people seemed to be getting on with things in their usual manner.
We stayed in a triple room on the first floor at the very end of the walkway overlooking the road in front on the hotel. Despite this close proximity, the room was quiet. It had a small bathroom with a shower and toilet, plus there was also a decent aircon unit and a flat screen TV with satellite.
The only issue we had was service at breakfast. The day before, you select your meal and time, but both mornings we waited in excess of 15-20mins for it to be brought to the table.
All in all, a nice little hotel and an enjoyable stay.
